ANTM’s reboot will have many changes, one being that it will now be hosted on VH1 after 22 cycles on the CW and UPN. And yes, that is Rita Ora as the new host.
Here are other new things to expect this cycle:
Rita Ora was announced as the new host earlier this summer: “The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time,” she said, “whether it’s music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes.”

No More Tyra: Though Tyra Banks will no longer serve as the show’s host, she will remain on board as an executive producer and is expected to make several surprise appearances.
America’s Next Top Model is still big business for Banks. It is under license in over 100 markets around the world and has 20 international versions in production). “I thought we were done with the brand,” Banks told USA Today. “But the fact that the brand still has viability, and that VH1 really truly sees a strong future with it, how could I say no to that?”
